Welcome to the 19th Edition of Explore Your Options. This book will help you through the maze of services available to Kansas seniors. It is designed to help you take an active role in making decisions that affect your health care and living situation. Even if you are faced with a serious illness or disabling disease, knowing that you have options to help you maintain your independence and stay at home can be a great comfort. The purpose of this book is to let you know about possible services in your community that you can use to find solutions that meet your special needs.
For various reasons, a service may be available but not listed. We encourage you to call your Area Agency on Aging. They will provide you with up-to-date information about services in your county and connect you with the right people to get services started.
